Norway

Following are all the Abba, Agnetha Fältskog, Frida and related items for Norway. Charts were a Top 18 Singles from January 1973, the Top 30 Singles from January 1974. Albums charts were a Top 18 to Top 26 (it varied) from July 1971 to January 1973, then Top 20 until 25 October 1979 when it became Top 40.

Special thanks to Jon Sandem for the original information, and to Ian Cole for directing me to the Norwegian Charts website, VG-lista. Additional information sent to me by Colin Hughes and Maurizio and sourced from "Den Store Norske Hitboka (1958 - 1993)" by Tore Gilde.

Key to Abbreviations:

Date: This is the date the single or album first appeared in the chart. For non-ABBA items, the week of the year is listed - the exact week commencing date will be added later.
Title: The title of the single or album. With singles, if there are two titles listed on one line, that single was considered a double A side.
HP(1): The highest position the item reached in the charts, and if it reached number 1, the amount of weeks spent at that position.
TI: This stands for "Times In" which is basically how many weeks the item spent on the charts.
